Media Release: Expanded anti-terror squad to silence dissent
“It has been reported that the Army is seeking to expand the Counter Terrorist Tactical Assault Group (CTTAG) based on what they say is ‘a surge in the global war on terrorism’. Yet what they really want is more soldiers for internal ‘terrorism threats’. What are these internal threats? These units have been and will continue to exist to crush domestic political dissent as demonstrated by the police Operation 8 of October 15th 2007” said Justice NOW! Spokeswoman Sally Darity.

It states: “Army heads are calling for recruits from the armed forces to man an anti-terror squad responsible for domestic security.
A defence source last night said the recruitment drive was prompted by “a surge in the global war on terrorism”.
The unit would also be responsible for dealing with any security threats at the 2011 Rugby World Cup.
Does NZ need an ‘anti-terror’ squad?”
Uncensored reply: “The New Zealand people do not need an anti-terror squad. The attacks of 7/7, 9/11, Oklahoma City and numerous other terror attacks have been proven to be inside jobs and have been used to justify the setting up of a police state, surveillance grid and invade countries for oil. Even the BBC series ‘The Power of Nightmares’ revealed that the so-called “War on Terror” is a scam. People need to ask themselves what the purpose of this squad really is. Does it have something to do with the elite bankers’ call for a New World Order? Does government need this squad because they are expecting resistance to what they have planned for us and want the army to protect themselves?
